Last year, when a friend and I went to Acen, we were able to get in with a school ID without a legal guardian(Well, my friend was, I had my awesome brother, who is 23, get me in.) Our school ID has our year of school, grade level, photo, name, and an ID number with bar code. I know some places require an ID with a photo and birthdate. I'm not able to find if Acen is any different. I was only able to find that children 14 and under require some sort of parental permission or something(or I could be entirely wrong.) I also do have my driving permit, if that makes a difference, at some places, it does. :3 My current age is 15 and I will be 15.9945205479452055 at time of registration. Basically, my question is, what are the requirements of registering at con for a 15 year old?

The only reason we check ID is to confirm your name matched your picture. We don't require a birth date.

Ages 16 and under do not need an ID. We cannot reasonably expect them to have a photo ID. You'll be fine :)

Thank you, but to make sure, I don't need a parent/guardian? And I will be having friends who are 14/15, would they need a parent/guardian to buy the badge for them? I'm referring to at con registration, if that changes anything.

And sorry about posting it in the wrong topic, I thought it belonged in convention policies/rules. >.<

No you do not need a parent or guardian. But please be aware of Rosemont's Curfew laws, I think it's 16 and under have to be either in their hotel or home by midnight but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Thank you! <3 And the curfew is midnight for 16 and under, or so says the ACen general rules page. ^^
